Jaci is an Arizona girl with a love for farmhouse decor. Wife to a handsome husband and mother to two beautiful children. "Growing up I always had a passion for all things design. From a young age I restyled my room regularly and loved shopping for home decor with my mother. I guess you could say I love change because everyday I'm rearranging things in my home to get a fresh new perspective. If I had to categorize my style I would call it mostly modern farmhouse, but with a little vintage boho twist."
PRH: Your home is just stunning and we have really enjoyed watching your style evolve from traditional farmhouse to modern farmhouse this past year. Tell us more about that transition and what inspired you to go there with your decor.
JH: Thank you!! I would say my first love is traditional farmhouse decor and you can see that throughout my home. As my style has evolved I’ve incorporated modern touches while staying true to my roots. There’s something that evokes a tactile feel when you can combine chippy vintage pieces in a bold modern space and I think I’ve done that. Any designer can blend styles but now my house truly feels like a home.
PRH: We are loving all your bold new modern looks, from black accent walls to brass accents. For anyone that loves that look too, but is afraid to take the leap, do you have any words of advice for taking risks in decorating?
JH: The great part about design and working on your own space is you are truly a painter on your own canvas. Taking a risk can be extremely satisfying when it’s a homerun but you can walk it back if it misses the mark. If you love it then go for it. When it comes to brass starting with accents like the Brass Terrarium candle holders at PRH or brass framed mirrors can be a good place to start. Don’t be afraid to mix your metals and if you want to take more of a leap then change out cabinet hardware and add light fixtures to create a bolder look.
PRH: For most of us that love vintage style, we would prefer to have actual vintage or antique pieces in our homes. That’s not always a realistic option though. Do you have any tips for buying reproduction vintage to get more of an authentic look and feel?
JH: Purple Rose Home does the most amazing job selecting items that look and feel vintage so my advice would be to shop at PRH! Your corbels and farm tables are just a few of my favorite items that look like original vintage pieces.
PRH: You were our very first curated collection and we love working with you. What drew you to Purple Rose Home and why do you keep coming back for more?
JH: I was immediately drawn to Purple Rose Home because your shop is extraordinary. Everything from your bedding to your stoneware is unique and special. I personally like to have exclusive one of a kind items in my home and you guys do such a fantastic job handpicking items that you cannot find anywhere else.
PRH: Which accounts on Instagram inspire you the most?
PRH: Would you mind sharing with our readers some tips for styling their homes for IG worthy photos and maybe some tips on growing their account like you have?
JH: Be organic! Stay true to what you love. Don’t try to mold to what you think people will like or it takes the joy out of it. I started my account because I have a passion for design. I love being able to get creative and share that side of me with everyone. It is hard putting yourself out there sometimes but it’s such a great feeling when you can inspire even one person with your crazy ideas! Lol! My account grew by using hashtags and by being shared by some amazing accounts like Better Homes and Gardens. As far as picture taking goes you don’t need a fancy camera but you need to make sure your lens is clean you have lots of light. I like to use PicTapGo for all my photo editing.
PRH: What are your most favorite decor items in you home?
JH: Most of my favorite pieces are all from Purple Rose Home. The Jaclyn bedspread, the brass pendant lights above our farm table , the Julia plant sconces, the wood pedestals and the wood beaded chandelier in our entry! I can’t leave out the original painting on our mantel by Copper Corners and our gorgeous sliding barn door from Porter Barnwood.

What are you and I having for lunch when we finally meet? I think it will be Pho because I’m crashing your lunch date with Liz! Lol ! Or Mexican! My fav!
PRH: Thank you so much for taking the time to chat with us. Is there anything else you would like to add for our readers?
JH: “A flower does not think of competing with the flower next to it, it just blooms”
This is my favorite quote at the moment. Whether you’re starting an IG account or just following along. It is important to stay true to yourself and not compare yourself to others. We all have real lives with real problems. The pictures you see are just a snapshot of a staged moment. I promise you … nothing is perfect. There are dishes in our sinks, laundry piled high and crumbs on our floors.
Thank you for taking the time to read a bit about me and my instagram journey. And a huge thank you to Purple Rose Home! Xoxo
You were one of our first curated collections and we love working with you. What drew you to Purple Rose Home and why do you keep coming back for more?
